People Helping People: The Jungle

Ever wondered what it would be like to be a volunteer with us in Calais? Ever wondered how Help Refugees first came to Calais and joined with our sister organisation there L’Auberge Des Migrants?

‘The Umbrella’ is the first in a series of short documentaries made by Tom Laurence from our team that will follow the work of volunteers on the ground in the Calais Jungle. This chapter focusses on the union of 2 humanitarian aid organisations – L’Auberge des Migrants (FR) and Help Refugees (UK) and the huge warehouse/ distribution network/ build team we set up up together.

Please watch here and email to volunteer with us:
